BJP questions ‘hurried’ cremation of gang-rape victim

Holding that “a nation in shock” is entitled to display its sense of despair, the BJP on Sunday disapproved of the “emergency-like” restrictions against anti-gang-rape protests and renewed its demand for a special session of parliament to adopt strict laws on crime against women.

Expressing “profound condolences” to members of the victim’s family and saluting her courage, the party also questioned the “hush-hush” manner in which she was cremated.

The BJP said that a proper debate in parliament on the issue would “certainly be able to tap upon the serious sense of distress and dismay which is sweeping the country” after the “supreme sacrifice of that young, brave daughter” of the country.

The main opposition party assured that it would cooperate with the government in all suitable legislative measures to strengthen laws relating to crime against women, in strengthening the judicial architecture to ensure the speedy justice to those who are victims and taking actions against the perpetrators of these heinous crimes.

“The government needs to come quickly with a proper structured response and to reflect upon the serious concerns of the country, it is imperative that a special session of parliament be called at the earliest which we have been demanding for some time,” BJP spokesperson Ravishankar Prasad told reporters in New Delhi.

Criticising the government for “converting Delhi into a chavni (cantonment)”, he said this “unfair” act of authorities reminds of the emergency era and added that “a nation in shock is certainly entitled to display its sense of despair, anger and pain.”

“…Why should Delhi be sealed like this? Why should Delhi be converted into a chavni reminding ourselves what is happened during emergency? This is very very unfair.

“Metro trains have been closed, people cannot move. I think, a nation in shock is certainly entitled to display its sense of despair, anger and pain. Thats what democracy is about. We don’t appreciate it at all,” he said.

The party also criticised the manner in which cremation of the victim was done.

“The hurried manner in which cremation the done was avoidable. We understand the right of privacy. The right of privacy has to be respected. But this hush-hush manner certainly raises a lot of curious questions too,” Mr. Prasad said.

    But Democracy is a good thing !

    The Girl is dead
    India’s darling daughter is dead
    But democracy is alive
    And democracy is a good thing.

    Every year
    21,000 mothers , daughters , sisters get raped,
    Countless others burnt to dowry-death;
    Poor starve or, shelterless
    Freeze on footpath;
    On each rainless day
    A hundred farmers commit suicide
    But democracy is alive
    And democracy is a good thing

    Each year , 1,600,000 children die of malnutrition
    Even as millions of tons of grain
    Rot under sun and rain
    Thousands die of tobacco smoke
    But democracy is alive
    And democracy is a good thing

    Hundreds die in floods
    Few thousands die crossing railway tracks
    A million children die working for 18 hours
    In dark / dungeon slave factories
    Living on a slice of bread and glass of dirty water
    But democracy is alive
    And democracy is a good thing

    Where else but in a democracy
    Do we have a right
    To vote / elect our own Masters Male,
    Who , for the next five years, will

     Silence us
     Torture us
     Maim us
     Rape us
     Plunder us
     Murder us

    Stop crying, Mother India,

    Stop voting for males

    who degrade females,

    Stop “ begging “ for equal representation

    It is your “ Right “ to wrest it

    And throw out all who resist it
